A resident of this vicinity for more than 35 years and have worked in the sales and marketing industy...mostly marketing myself around 'people helping people' with a customer focused goal of complete service and satisfaction.Most recent(10 yrs)in the Mortgage/Banking industry in support of Homeowners and Real Estate partners.

Personal interests range from Health and fitness,Motorcycling,Sports,Golf and sharing Good food and wine with friends.

The Owner purchased this estate in 1994

My original interest in this property was the potential of developing it into something of interest and my own vision of what it could become incorporating my personal flair for Architectural design and developement.The grounds,3.5 acres,the huge and ancient Oaks and the possibility of clearing areas to take advantage of the magnificent views,took on a life of its own.The pool,outdoor kitchen,lower lawn,garden area and Vineyard were a dream come true and truely takes you away from it all...but everything is right here within reach and access.

Also shown on HomeAway # 251649

Private and exclusive...On a private road with rare activity from neighboring area and difficult to see into private pool area.None of the features are shared.

Indoor area is well furnished and very comfortable with functional layout.Views of the surrounding areas approx 300 degrees.Modern Kitchen,breakfast banquette area looks east toward early morning sun and pool in full view just below.Full audio and visual features in and around deck area.

If you enjoy garden color,you will be happy to see a mature landscape add to the beauty.Much in Lavenders,Roses and other bedding plants.The entire backdrop for photo moments will be a definate feature for you and family.Fall brings an unbelievable color to the property as the strategic planting of Maples come alive !

Pool area gets in access of 9 hrs of full sun (peak)with umbrellas and cabana for protection if desired.The beach entry are gets the very last and facing east the setting sun on Mt Diablo is a highlight as you settle down to dinner.All ameneties are right at your fingertips and an after dinner drink around the fire pit or another dip in the pool will truly put you in the relax mode...as the sunset gives way to the twinkling light on the distant peaks and lower valley.Watch for the beam of orange light as it slowly breaks behind the Mountain.....the moon is in full view from this area and breathtaking when it is full and very hard to cut the evening short.Cabana equipt with change/bathroom.

ANNUAL FRIENDS GETAWAY WEEKEND

  • 5 out of 5
It was our turn to pick the locale for this year's friend's getaway weekend. After an exhaustive search we found the PERFECT location!!!

We spent the great majority of our sun-drenched weekend poolside listening to music, playing bocce in the lawn, enjoying the pool & spa, hanging at the cabana bar, and appreciating a gorgeous view. At night we enjoyed the fire pit, the poolside barbeque, and the pool table.

We were only 20 minutes from home, but it felt like we were in a tropical location.

Chris was great. He communicates well, gave us a great tour of the place so we were comfortable operating lights, music, spa temperature, etc. and was very accessible.

I highly recommend this property for small groups.

AMAZING EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I rented this home for my son's graduation weekend. From the very first, it was an excellent experience. My parents, brother, sister, husband as well as my children all spent 3 nights together; laughing, playing pool, grilling on the huge grill by the pool, and relaxing in the hot tub. Chris was very helpful with all the arrangements. It was a perfect place for a family reunion and graduation party!

WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS WITH THE FAMILY!!!

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I travelled to the Bay Area to spend Christmas Vacation and we stayed at Chris' wonderful house!!! The views were breathtaking and the area is super quiet and serene. We had loads of fun with the pool table and since the house was so spacious we were all acommodated very comfortably! Chris was wonderful, really nice and helpful; he made us all feel at home....he even helped with hiding Santa's presents

We wished the weather had permitted us to use the outside area a bit more but it was pretty cold...but the fireplaces inside and great entertainment system were great and helped us stay in the Christmas spirit!!! We hope to visit again since we had so much fun and the kids loved it! I will say that my favorite part was the breakfast nook overlooking the mountains and seeing the wonderful views early in the morning while drinking some hot chocolate!!!

Thank you Chris for everything, it was a perfect family getaway!!!! We all enjoyed it too much, we didn't want to come back home!!!! :)

A PERFECT THANKSGIVING STAY!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I have rented luxury properties many times in many countries and, I am happy to report, this was the best stay we have ever had! We are from the Bay Area and thought Lafayette would be a convenient location for our family and friends to gather. Chris's home is very spacious with beautiful and comfortable furnishings. It is located high on a hill with amazing views in all directions. We enjoyed the morning mist settled in the treetops below us and amazing sunsets. The house has beautiful, well-maintained landscaping and multilevel large patios and decks perfect for entertaining a large group or for a stroll and quiet contemplation. I prepared a Thanksgiving feast with all the trimmings for 16 adults in the modern and well-equipped kitchen. And there was ample room for my unofficial "sous chefs" to pitch in and help with the preparation. The pool table was a huge hit as was the outdoor living area and roomy hot tub. We wish the weather had been a little warmer so we could have used the infinity pool. But we had temperatures in the upper 60s which was delightful. Chris is a warm and gracious host who responded quickly to any question or request. He gave us a great tour when we arrived and a bottle of excellent Cabernet from his vineyard on the property. He even supplied a roasting pan when he learned I was cooking a very big turkey. It was an awesome Thanksgiving and the days passed much too quickly. We are looking forward to our next stay!
